How do you top a visit from Santa? Spend New Year in Orlando! Surprise the kids with a holiday of a lifetime, or better still – make it their Christmas present…
Can you think of a better way to ring in the New Year? Enjoy a trip of a lifetime by celebrating New Year with your family. Ten days is just enough time to see the main sights in Orlando. Visit Universal Studios where you will see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter as well as mind blowing simulator rides from your favourite movies.
Walt Disney World is also a must see – and not just just for younger kids. With the brand new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened this year, and Pandora – The World of Avatar – one of Orlando’s most popular attractions, you may need to spend longer in Disney than you think! Let the kids see their favourite Disney characters in street parades and make sure you catch the dazzling fire work displays.
However, there is more to Orlando than Universal and Disney. There are numerous water parks to choose from as well as Legoland, Seaworld and Discovery Cove. And don’t forget the shopping! You need to allow a full day to explore the Florida Mall…
I have chosen the highly rated Avanti International Resort. Centrally located on International Drive, there are many shops and dining options within walking distance, and the parks are only a short shuttle ride away. This hotel has been recently refurbished and receives great reviews on TripAdvisor. There is a large pool, a kids play area, beach volleyball, and shuffleboard court. The Avanti Pool Bar & Grille is a also great option for food after a long day at the parks.
Fly from Dublin to Orlando on the 28th of December and enjoy a ten night stay during the school holidays, for only €2598 based on two adults and two children sharing. If you wish to stay longer or come back earlier, simply edit the search on the links below to suit your requirements.
TOP TIP: There are cheaper flights available if you don’t mind longer flying times. I chose flights via Newark for this deal as they have only one stop and you will clear immigration in Dublin Airport before you leave. I ticked the following boxes on the left hand side to get flights with good connections:
- One stop
- No change airport during connections
- Journey duration: 15 hours or less
